Stating the obvious, much like everything else, Halloween is going to be different this year. BUT, that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a real good, real socially distanced time this weekend thanks to a solid combo of virtual and IRL programming. We’ve got digital dance parties, cemetery strolls, spooky outdoor movie screenings and more on deck, so prepare to be enthralled! (Also, please be responsible and stay safe! Masks! Hand washing! Holding onto your inhibitions for dear life if you choose to imbibe!) But first, let’s cover some stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

Friday October 30th

Saturday October 31st

Sunday November 1st

  • Looking to shake up your plant collection? PLNTR is hosting a socially distanced pop-up plant swap at Right Proper from 2-5pm, so grab your greens ‘n get ready to do some trading.
  • Meanwhile, Happy Trees Harvest Fest returns to ANXO, this time socially distanced, but featuring limited edition ciders and loads of fun (including a District Dogs costume contest) from 9am to 5pm; dress as Bob Ross or a happy tree for $10 store credit.
  • You can also celebrate Día de los Muertos outdoors (and for free) at National Portrait Gallery, where visitors can contribute memories of loved ones to altars located on the stairs. There will also be a 2-hour live visual performance by MasPaz and Guache, which will be projected onto the museum facade starting at 6:30pm.
  • More into staying home? Tune into the 4th annual Día de los Muertos Benefit Festival, which is happening virtually from 3-7pm ET; 100% of proceeds will support The Young Center and Rostros Sabios.
  • Plus 92Y is hosting Scott Frank and the cast of The Queen’s Gambit as they join Jodie Foster for a virtual conversation about the show at 7pm ET.
  • AND Brooklyn Brainery is hosting a 7:30pm $6 virtual course titled Fashionably Strange: A History of Victorian Creepiness. (HERE FOR IT.)
